FORT COLLINS, Colo. – A fast-moving round of thunderstorms that swept across northern Colorado Tuesday afternoon flooded some Fort Collins streets with over a foot of water and hail.

The storm developed south of Denver and moved northward along I-25 around rush hour. The storm hit Fort Collins just before 7 p.m. and brought hail up to 1 inch in diameter and heavy rain that caused flash flooding.

Several intersections were flooded, but among the worst was seen near the Colorado State University campus on Lake Street in Fort Collins, where several vehicles were stuck in the flooding.

As the city's police department put it, the water won.
